He graduated from the University of Georgia at age 18, read law at the office of Thorington and Pickett in Montgomery and was admitted to the bar in 1834. Hall did not practice law, preferring instead to pursue a career as a plantation owner and operator. In 1835, he was appointed Inspector General of the Alabama Militia's 1st Regiment with the rank of Major. Hall was Adjutant of the 1st Regiment during the 1836 Creek War. He later served several terms in the Alabama Legislature. Initially a opponent of secession, once the Confederacy was formed, Hall became a supporter, and five of his sons fought for the Confederacy. In addition to operating his plantation, Hall was active in several businesses, including serving as a Board of Directors member of the South and North Alabama Railroad until it was sold to the Georgia Central Railroad.
